  • So, will it start to happen this year? • ‘Tools’ market is growing very rapidly • ‘Content’ market moves into free and paid directions (long-tail included) • resulting in numerous businessmodels (don’t compare this market too easy with the Music market) • Do we really agree on one (DRM free) standard?
